ATLANTA – With the fall season a little more than halfway in the books, Georgia State women’s golf head coach Cathy Mant announced the team’s five-tournament spring schedule on Wednesday, highlighted by annual John Kirk Panther Intercollegiate.
Mant also announced an addition to the fall schedule as the Panthers will return to the Alexa Stirling Women’s Invitational at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek Oct. 26-28, to close out the season.
The spring season will once again open Feb. 18-19, in Florida at the Amelia Island Collegiate at Amelia National Golf Club. This will mark the fifth-straight season playing in the event hosted by Jacksonville.
Two weeks later Georgia State will head to the Carolina Coast for the River Landing Classic in Wallace, N.C. The two-day event will take place at River Landing Country Club March 4-5.
For the first time since 2016, the Panthers will travel to Sorrento, Fla., for the MSU Citrus Challenge at RedTail Golf Club March 17-19. The course has hosted numerous events over the years, including NCAA Regionals.
Just over a week later the Panthers will return home for the annual John Kirk Panther Intercollegiate at Eagle’s Landing Country Club, March 31-April 2, in Stockbridge, Ga. It will mark the 26th playing of the event and 19th year at Eagle’s Landing.
“We have had so much support at our home event over the years,” Mant said. “It’s incredible to think that we are closing in on 20 years of having the event at Eagle’s Landing. Their dedication to the event means a lot to us.
“Our goal when building the schedule was to be playing our best golf when we reach the conference tournament. I think this schedule allows us to do that so we will be ready for LPGA International when the time comes in April.”
The Sun Belt Conference Championship is scheduled for LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla., April 15-17. The winner of the tournament will receive the conference’s automatic bid to NCAA Regional play which is scheduled for May 6-8 at four national sites this year.
The season will hopefully conclude at the NCAA Championship at The Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville, Ark., May 17-22.
Georgia State will return to the course on Oct. 21, for the start of the Pat Bradley Classic in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. It will mark the fourth of five fall tournaments for the Panthers.
